Winter Soldier: Iraq and Afghanistan

November 24, 2008 A Truth-Teller for Our Times by Nick Turse and Tom Engelhardt

Maybe truth-telling is becoming more fashionable now . . . The pendulum seems to be swinging back that way as people are realizing that by not confronting reality in all categories (wars, politics, finances, science, etc.) it will eventually affect us all, as it has now allowed, finally with some losing 50% of their paper investments, to open their eyes and begin to wake up. To other realities. 9/11 Truth is the path to all else.

[Note to Readers:In the spirit of Nick Turse's article below on truth-telling and civilian deaths in war, TomDispatch would like to direct your attention to a recently published paperback, Winter Soldier: Iraq and Afghanistan, Eyewitness Accounts of the Occupations, a powerful text with words, images, and documents from the spring 2008 hearings in Washington, D.C., at which American veterans of Bush's two occupations spoke out about the dark side of the wars they fought.]
